Flytipping blitz extended after 'pride brought back' to litter hotspot
Date of alert:
Saturday, 5 March 2022
A targeted council blitz of fly tipping has seen incidents slashed by half and at least one rogue litterbug facing prosecution.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council said its campaign has been focusing on the area around Salisbury Road - including the Churchill Passageways - which was a hotspot for fly tipping and wheelie bins being left out.
Households were given bin stickers, information on the SCRAP fly tipping campaign and a letter from their local bin men and street cleaners.
Four weeks on, and a council spokesman said tipping incidents have reduced by more than half, and the number of bins regularly left out went from 70 to almost none.
